San Francisco City Employees Banned from Travel to South Dakota

The City of San Francisco has barred its employees from traveling to South Dakota, reports KOTA News. The decision follows the passage of legislation which allows faith-based organizations to not place children with same-sex or unmarried couples.

Employees of the City of San Francisco will not be allowed to travel to South Dakota on state or city-sponsored business. The city will also not be able to contract with South Dakota businesses. San Francisco has a city ordinance which blocks travel to states that discriminate against LGBT individuals.
